♪ ♪ ♪ neil: did you get any work at all done today? to hear the retail experts tell it, more than 1 million americans were shopping online, 100 million americans online. welcome, veryone. they call it cyber monday for good reason. it is the online shopping day of the yer. more folks log on and that is because chances are that bosses are doing the same thing and who can lame them? pointing and clicking beats waiting in long lis and
11:01 pm
shpping. don't hold your breath thinking that we are at the verge of breaking in a record. not that the record numbers weren't out there shopping. let's just say that they weren't doing a lot of buying one is much buying. so monday >> we did see a 3% decline. that is what the national retail federation is expecting. >> target sales? dollar sales? >> they are seng a decline in the amount of the average person is spending. in the population increases every year. overall we may see the total sales rise. but it's th amount that the average person is spending and cybermonday is a different story. people have been collecting the offers, retailers have been getting very aggressive and so efficie. people are having more confidence to shopping online
11:02 pm
and getting products before christmas and that's driving more salesonline. neil: the argument is that more and more are veering with online purchases and that will maybe save the retailers. you agree? >> i agree that we will see more people doing this online. but so what? it's a lot easier to shop from your phone or an ipad today. retailers have gotten more savvy about that. but what we have learned is that cybermonday, black friday, those don't translate to the rest of the shopping season and we are not going to learn that much in the first place. so what does it tell us about the consumer? they are being very savvy about the way they shop. but looking at the consumer, the consumer is still a little bit in trouble. we have over 50 million pple on food stamps and we have a lot of people out of work still. wehave savings have gone way down. what does that tell us?
11:03 pm
that the consumer is going back into debt and i don't know how much of the cheerleader we want to be on a really big retail shopping season here. neil: we have been covering the holiday season and we are always talking about the trepidation and they end up being okay, but by and large, they are okay. and we have unbelievable performance measures to beat? >> is very much driven short-term in the stock market, the performance, for all erican companies, particularly with reil. and i think you have to think about what the last guest just mentioned, there has been a decline in confidence for the last two months and it will
11:04 pm
result in lower sales. the declining confidence is linked to fear of thefuture and what is happening to the economy and will i make as much money next year and will i have a job. so all of thee things and it seems to be more so on people's minds because confidence numbers are dropping and that is a trend that we are seeing since the beginning of october. neil: that has been what you believe, rigt? >> a lot of people are expecting health carcosts to rise another new tax that will calm on consumers. there are a lot of things that have hit the economy, concerns about the government shutdown, concerns about his health care plan, that hasranslated into not a lot of new jobs. a lot of the numbers have been disappointing and people see that. for people that are working and haven't lost their jobs, they probably feel confident that they can go out and spend some
11:05 pm
money for the christmas season. but no one is feeling gregarious because there is a lot of uncertainty about the economy and at th sam time, we have a 7% consumer savings rate and that is all the way down to 2% now. what we are seeing is consumers have chipped away at any savings they have had and have very few bullets left in the chamber here neil: all right, thank you, have a great holiday. >> u.s. well. neil: here is what might be holding us back, looking at health care premiums. retail cyber monday come or you can point and click and find deals and health care cyber monday where you can't necessarily find this. kate joins us now.

11:07 pm
neil: why now and we can't afford it. why the sudden shock right at the get-go? >> i think we heard from hhs that the average cost would be $320 per person per month and people didn't realize that the subsidies on for everyone, up to 400% of the federal poverty level. if you are out of that range, 94 it thousand dollarsyou won't be getting discounted health care and in many cases it is more expensive for people. >> do they get a cheaper deal? >> they may not have had covered before in the past. and now they are getting coverage that may be lower in cost. so compared to what they would get before that, but again, they
11:08 pm
may not have had helped her before. neil: there are enthusiasts for this lot have been arguing and they say once you try this, you'll like it. and young people may not be signing up at all and i've had someone compare this, where'd you put a tv in your shopping cart, you go back and buy that whether you need it. you're a young person come you put a premium on anything about it and you say i'm young and healthy and i'd rather pay for that and something i can't afford right now. neil: they could entice you with the heth care plan if you've got a tv. thank you so much. when you have to have it overnight, how jeff pesos has

getting a raw deal said rippard benjamin. and explain that. >> i mean this is a -- this is the ticking time bomb o there. this bill is so big at federal lynch, we can't affood to pay it. i, applaud the democrat governors in illinois saying enough is enough. neil: rich, i can understand workers, who have been planning for this, they cou grandfather this in, promises were made at a different time. >> but nonetheless, what we know is that they are trying to move the goal post on the workers, trying to welch on an agreement.
11:21 pm
il: they are moving on credit workers for decade. >> this is different, you put yourself in the shoes o a kid deciding what to do with his life. he could go to law or medicine, he becomes a firefighter, a cop, with the understanding he will accept a lifime of modest pay. with economic security. >> not modest pay any more, uld you have said the same decades ago with that kid, becoming a steelworker similar promises made, similar pensions made, company is gone. now pennies on the dollar. >> that the private sector, we can't do anything about that. neil: but, human beings are human beings, it hits both whether they work for private or public. >> no, public people, serving all of us. neil: they work for us. >> they work for us. neil: we have this pension pitch they have it. >> they are moving will goal post.
11:22 pm
neil: they -- my argument that of -- is that goal post has been moved. , and breaking promises is a real bitch, and it happened so many times, so many countries, and so many capitalist societies on the private and public tech or side, that the reality should be, if it sounds too good to be true even at times that see to peak too good to be true you should be cautious? >> yeah, i think we need to realize nobody, is enjoying the fact that the retired workers are going to have real heart ache, and have to figure out a way to get bk, but you talk about kids, these state budgets like illinois have a choice to make, they will either spend money on education or spend money fulfilling the promises that couldn't be kept -- can't be kept, at the end of the day there is only so much money to go around, we tried to take out more bonds but as a nation our credit ratings are going lower
11:23 pm
and lower, old way of doing things is not going to wor we have to make re sob o sober adut choices, what is the other choice? simply to evice rate spending on roads and brings and education, we are to make the tough choices. neil: there a middle ground, i want to try to -- both of you, slowly bring it in, that is don't make a you know, 180 switch right now, but stagger this in move those with a pension into a 401(k). as much as companies provides not that it is instancetainious. but as things stan now, these unfunded obligations are so staggering no one, no one will e able to pay them promises or not. >> that is voluntary, sure that economy a good solution. neil: like i said.
11:24 pm
was not voluntary for them, it is we could do something to slowly bring them to this reality, i think they can go fighting and kicking about it but for the good at keeping somebody in their mention they have to make the move now. >> voluntary, voluntary. neil: do you think that anyone would volunteer for this? they don't get something set by the company, would they volunteer for that. they never do. >> it depends on the risk, how old they are. neil: what if you gave them a sheet of paper with money on, money in money out, there was more money anything out than coming? >> the individual, depends on what they are getting out it how old they are and their appetite for risk. neil: would you tell future jeanrations, you have -- generations you have to cool it you are not getting a pension you, a 401(k).
11:25 pm
401(k). >> you know, a better less modest wage perhaps. neil: final thoug on this whole issue, matt? >> i think one thing that in this plan in illinois, these are democrat pros posing this against their base, which is unions, they are saying we have to raise the retirement age. neil: they say 96 i fix it now r we're all in a don't fix later. there are a lot of solutions but what are least painful. >> there is no government guarantee any more, we are to realize how serious this dote debt situation is. neil: thank you, illinois, watch what is happening there. probably a sampll case for nation going forward. insulting enough that fannie mae and freddie mac skipped o on any punishment for a mortgage belt down, t get paid off from goofy off. it time to sound off after this.

neil: get ready, this is the week you might top think twice dashing into that fast foot restaurant while -- fast-food restaurant while you shop, workers there on a mission. let's say it will be a week to remember, for all those restaurant customers that would be you. because if you can make it through their protest, get a load of what you have to get used to if they get their way. pricier burgers, fries and everything because of an eye-popping pricier minimum wage, try $15 an hour. now one thing it you a mickey d's and burger king and have swing that, can you imagine being a small businessman, trying to do that? david mccarther cannot, and neither can restaurant owner marco. 15 bucks minimum, what does that do to you? >> well, closes the doors, it will never happen. i feel sorry for these people they are advised it is a remote
11:38 pm
possibility. the cost of labor is not being absorbed with that rate. it would look at going into a pricing increase 7 to 8% on your ices right off the board to cover that wage increase, one thing to talk about beginning $15 an hour, but that drives every other employee that has been successful above, ttat their wage up too, that is where people lose a train of thought. it will not happen, i think that it is a shame the unions have -- are you know, are leading the people around like blind sheep. they are using it as a ploy to increase their numbers. and it is not -- i don't -- just not going to happen. neil: what would happen to you marco. they will add costs to passed along to consumer, many argue a lot easier said than done. consumers resist paying for
11:39 pm
pricier food items, might not happen. >> yes. neil, unless you are willing to walk into m restaurant and pay $17 for a sandwich, that is not going to happen. and i think that this discussion ofinimum wage and raising it, to what i think is absurd level of $15, masks the problems of ush economy, the probl is the lack of economy growth, and job opportunity, after someone comes s at the entry level jobs, those are the real issues that are being mask need notion of $15 min outwage. neil: david, you raised a good point, if you raise it for lower workers on the wrung, others want their wages rising as well, have you very high staffing changes, then you let go of people, who do you let go? >> well, you will have -- in my case, i would close the doors let everyone go. this is unsustainable that is
11:40 pm
the problem with this what unions do is they use that minimum wage, as a driving force to negotiate their, then tir hourly wage above that so it all in their interest to drive that bottom wage up. what is going to happen, i think what they are fighting for is like, always, saying $15 an hour, let's find something anywhere lower, if they can bring minimum wage up 2 bucks an hour that gives them more power at bargain table. neil: i think you just hit on a brilliant point, mark i think that is parts of the strategy, not toouble -- like i enter a contract negotiation with fox i immediately say hey i hear the other anchors here are paid- and then movi move on from. there to your colleagues point if they can get 9 or 10 bucks they are off to the races, that changes the dynamic, there are way it would zoom you? >> it is, still a misguided
11:41 pm
problem because these unis are really in my view duping a lot of worker into believing there will be this super large increase in the minimum wage. and they are doing it for their own solve serving interest, at the end of the day, small businesses and retailers don't have you know this huge magic gold stash that they are just keeping, you know the marginsn these lower wagendustries, are very thin to begin with. and margins are not there, to support higher00 al min mum wag. il: thank you, very much you argue that case well, you peak for most of the hiring of the country. keep that in mind, next time you hear union guy ling his mind. >> any remember the president making this promise -- >> cice and competition, you

11:46 pm
hearing this much bstates that are going over the cliff, they are screaming, because the adnistration said that number are measures up, you will be surprised how many just down add up, first. do you remember this? >> competition and consumer choice are actually making insurance affordable. neil: that is not so. heritage health policy expert ed hazewell, meyeelmeyer said it ig competition. >> i looked at number of insurers, that offer individual market number in the state, and number on the exchanges, and what i found is except for a few states where the numbers were the same or maybe a couple states where they were slightly more, that vast majority of states there were fewer insurers offering coverage on the exchanges about 29% reduction
11:47 pm
across the nation in number of insurers offering individual market coverage, compared to before obamacare. neil: what happens to folks in those states ? >> well, they have fewer choices. some of those insurers that are not on the edge change, may -- the exchange may still be offering coverage outside of that exchange, youre in a state had 5 insurers, now just two are on the exchange, maybe the other 3 are oering outside. you might be able to go find one or two off of the exchange but it is less choice, and less competition. neil: what the presint was talking about those states run by largely republican governors.
11:48 pm
what are the real facts ? >> i don't find any evidence of that. what has happened is that in neral the participation of the ensurers in the exchanges is similar to what is was before the exchang, but less. so, a state that had you kno 10 carriers before might have 5 on the exchange. a state with 5 before might have two or three. there is really no difference between whether the state ran the exchange or the federal develop ran the exchange. cross the number of carriers, everytng from states with only two carriers to states with 10 or so carriers, you found examples of both. neil: what about all of these private exchanges that are popping up? i know a lot of ibm workers move into tse, more for the retirees, what -- how are they doing? >> well, that is very different. and that is sething i have not
11:49 pm
to dig into as closely as i'd like, i will be working on, i find it very interesting, what is going on there, is these are large employers that are self insurerred, they are creating 3 intermediaries like big benefits consultants. they are creating these private exchanges where they can offer their workers multiple plans, and what is interesting with some biggest ensurers like aetna, and united and cigna, they are not playing in the obamacare exchanges but for trying it out in a few states, but you do fine them on private exchanges, because 60% of their curb inbusiness is with current business with the largismer er. so that is where they will be, you know, the insurers are one
11:50 pm
group, some are going to certain ways others other ways, if you are a insurer like aetna or cigna you are going with the large employers. neil: thank you very much, ed. neil: maybe it should be called plaque and blew friday with -- plaque and blew friday with -- black and what's betterith than zero heartburn?
